What did blade Nzimande said about NSFAS today 

Blade Nzimande Speech Today on NSFAS 2023 –  Minister of higher education, science and innovation Blade Nzimande and National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) chairperson Ernest Khosa are briefing the media about the opening of funding applications for 2024.

Nzimande’s office said: “The minister and board chairperson will, among others, announce the opening and closing dates of the application cycle and provide an update on the enhancements made on the NSFAS funding application portal.”

The Minister announced the opening of NSFAS applications.

NSFAS can only be accessed by application. We are encouraging all potential students to apply now that we are open. Take action now and apply before the last day. 4.

The Minister declared that applicants will not be required to submit any supporting documentation. Additionally, he stated that applying does not require waiting for matric results.

Why was the NSFAS application deadline so late?
Nzimande provided an explanation for the delayed opening of NSFAS applications.

We opened in November in order to give beneficiaries faster turnaround times for decisions that are in line with our evaluation of their financial eligibility, which calls for current SARS data.

To ensure that the required and current information was available during the application season, NSFAS waited for SARS to finish their tax period. This calculated timing supports the organization’s goal of simplifying decision-making procedures while enabling the smooth processing of an NSFAS online application.

Funding decisions for Sassa beneficiaries will be made right away. 35% of NSFAS beneficiaries in 2023 were Sassa beneficiaries.
